The End of the Adventure

The End of the Adventure

(p.156) Chapter Seven The End of the Adventure

Catherine Hanley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the end of Louis VIII the Lion's quest for the English crown. Louis's men in Lincoln braced themselves for the forthcoming attack by the regent and his army. The leadership group — Thomas count of Perche, Saer de Quincy, Gilbert de Gant and Robert Fitzwalter — redoubled the assault on Lincoln castle, and waited to see from which direction the hostile force led by William Marshal would arrive. This chapter reconstructs the battle of Lincoln and the defeat of Louis's troops at Lincoln and Sandwich. It also looks at Louis's negotiations with the regent, Blanche of Castile's efforts to send reinforcements to her husband, and Louis's decision to leave England after seventeen months of adventure.
